    Here is few pics I took today with my Pro and two of my Air 2's. I tried to get the pic exactly to scale in each tablet.

    iPad Pro recap so far:
    Battery life test of my Pro has exceeded the 10 hour mark and looks to be a honest 12 hours of internet use. Speakers are class leading and blows away any tablet and most all laptops I have heard. Speed is blistering fast with screen spitting apps. Its not that my Air 2 running ios 9.2 is slow but compared to the Pro its noticeably slower.

    Battery testing:

    iPad Pro:
    A loss of 11% per 90 minutes of Netflix play. Loss of .1222% per minute of use. 7.333% a hour. Total of 12.2 hours of Netflix play. This is with screen and volume set at 50%. Location services are on.

    This mirrors my iPad 3 battery life and what I have tested is the gold standard of battery life for a tablet.
    This is very impressive considering it's driving 4 speakers sounds louder than all the other tablets and it's brightness is brighter than all the other tablets set at 50% brightness. In the real world, I would set it to 40ish % and volume lower and get considerably better battery life.


    To put this into perspective here are a few other tablets and how they performed in the similar test.

    Samsung Tab S 10": loss of 23% per 90 minutes giving it a 6.52 hour Netflix play time.
    Lenovo Tab 2 A10: loss of 17% per 90 minutes giving it a 8.82 hour Netflix play time.
    IPad 3: loss of 11% per 90 minutes giving it a 12.2 hour of Netflix play time.

    Thanks for the review! Have you had a situation where the iPad Pro is too big or uncomfortable to hold?

    No, not at all. It's lighter than its size would have you believe. Very well balanced and I have used it for hours on end without thinking it's getting heavy. In the context of a tablet, it is very light but if you're used to a phone it certainly will feel heavier than that.
    Battery life is outstanding and I would never compromise that for a fraction bit thinner or lighter. It's perfect as is.

    How sharp do the edges feel in your hand? I have that issue with the iPad Air 2... its so thin that its a bit uncomfortable in my hands after a bit of time.

    Funny you mentioned this. I like to use my Air 2 in a Khomo case that gives it a bit more thickness. I find the ultra thin tablets too hard to hold without a case. Same goes with my Samsung Tab s I use to own. The Pro is easier for me to hold because it's a tad thicker than the Air 2. I currently have it in Moda case that isn't a smart case so the case will be going back to Bestbuy next time I am go there. I have a white Apple Smart Cover coming until I find a suitable cover/case. I hold the Pro different like a steering wheel 9 and 3 o'clock. This way all 4 speakers are not covered up. I don't find any discomfort.
